The honor was bestowed on September 27th at Bio-Based Live America’s 2017 Bio-Based Innovation Awards ceremony honoring standout products available in the Americas that are derived from plants and other renewable bioresources to provide alternatives to conventional petroleum-derived products.

For two days, several hundred participants from mid-size to very large, well-known brands such as IBM, Procter  & Gamble, Eastman Chemical Company, and Coca Cola were in attendance.   The conference agenda was jam-packed with valuable panel expert insights focused on mastering four key areas to achieve success:  technology, money, models and markets.

He shared how his first start-up, Naturally Iowa, launched in 2004, was the first company to construct a plant-based, compostable half-gallon bottle for organic milk, which laid the groundwork for today’s 100% compostable water bottle and cap.

Totally Green Bottles and Caps is now officially taking purchase orders for their compostable water bottle.  We are glad to help companies such as Totally Green Bottles and Caps fulfill their sustainable bioplastic dreams.  If you have an injection molded plastic product you would like to manufacture more sustainably, please contact us.
